Fans have seen the dining room and eaten the takeout, but they haven’t been allowed in the Pink Bellies building until today. At 5 p.m., chef/owner Thai Phi will unlock the doors at 595 King Street, and customers will get to immerse themselves in all the glory that is Pink Bellies. It’s first come, first serve.
From food truck to food stall to pop-ups, a large fan base has followed the Vietnamese concept all around the Lowcountry. Today, Phi’s full vision comes to life. Look for the famous garlic noodles, spicy lamb dumplings, and more.

Dollar ice cream on King Street
Move over Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, there’s a new frozen dessert transplant on King Street. Starting today, October 28, at noon, Brooklyn-based OddFellows Ice Cream Co. will open the doors at 550 King Street. Located in the former Revelator Coffee space, OddFellows will serve ice cream from noon until 10 p.m. today. The first 100 customers in line will receive a $1 scoop. A portion of the opening proceeds to local non-profit We Are Family.
OddFellows specializes in non-traditional flavors like olive oil, miso peanut butter brownie, and cheddar apple pie, created by James Beard-nominated chef Sam Mason. OddFellows is open daily, from noon to 10 p.m.
